Enlist your kitchen gadgets to do double duty and use your waffle iron to make fun pressed sandwiches—toddlers will like the bumpy pattern it creates on the bread! Almond butter, honey, and bananas make another good waffle-sandwich filling. And baby won’t know it, but this is a great source of vitamin K, thanks to the bread and butter!

  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons low or no-sugar fruit jam
  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons softened cream cheese
  • two 2 1⁄2 inch-thick slices soft bread, such as challah
  • butter for grilling




Step 1:

Heat the waffle iron. Spread the cream cheese on one slice of bread and the jam on the other. Close the sandwich, lightly butter the outsides, and place in the waffle iron until crisp and golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Let cool completely and then cut the sandwich into strips your toddler can handle before serving.
